FO Lavanda

I couldn't wait until Friday to show this FO off, and there will be something else for you to look at then ;-) so here we go:

(It's missing two buttons at the top because I didn't buy enough! I need 8 for the 6T size)

Here it is from the side, with the beautiful cables continuing up each arm and joining in the middle of the hood

I love how the ribbing travels down and then twists together to make the cables

Posing now :-)

After-thought pockets, just what a 6 year old needs for storing all the things she picks up lol

So pretty *sigh* :-)


If I ever decide to cast on a bigger one or even a Romantika please give me a nudge and remind me how long this one took! Not a project I want to attempt any time soon given how little time I get to knit during the day. It would probably take me years lol

    1. Thank you, she definitely is, poor thing! It's funny if I look at her features individually they are all from her Dad but somehow when you put them all together she looks like me. I think her sister is going to be more like her Dad though

    1. thank you, she chose the yarn (with a little guidance to make sure it was the right size etc) and the buttons, she's got a good eye for colours
